We all have busy lives revolving around work, children and other responsibilities. So an easy dish that is quick to cook but healthy and yummy to eat is very sought after. I turn to Italian for this. Especially because we have lot of good pasta that is fast and frozen but still healthy. My favorite is frozen spinach and mozzarella ravioli from Costco. This preparation is very easy and yummy-licious. So here goes my version of Ravioli with tomato cream sauce. Continue reading

My mother in law is an amazing woman. She always makes great food with just the most minimalistic ingredients. So, when the other day I felt like making Bruchetta, but had no fresh basil in hand, I made an alternative version. I used pesto instead and it came out splendid! I wish to share with you this twist to Bruchetta.
There a couple of reasons I started making my own pizzas. Well, I love pizza…but who doesn’t! But what I found difficult was to find an Italian pizzeria near Milpitas, CA that really does Italian pizza well. I mean, seriously…how hard is it to make a tasty pizza with a thin crust? After having multiple failed attempts at finding a decent place, I decided to make my own. Once I made it, there was no going back. Actually, it is quite easy to make this especially if you make enough and freeze the dough. I hope you have same success making thin crust Italian pizza like I did.
